Iowa vs. Michigan 2012: Becoming 'Michigan Men'

Sandra Dukes-US PRESSWIRE

Players, coaches reflect on season after win over Iowa.

The Michigan Wolverines (8-3, 6-1 Big Ten) scored touchdowns on their first six possessions (with Devin Gardner figuring into all of them) and racked up 513 yards of total offense in a 42-17 win over Iowa Saturday.

Denard Robinson, who had missed the past two weeks due to injury, played mostly as a running back, carrying the ball 13 times for 98 yards as Michigan knocked the Hawkeyes out of bowl contention.

Although Gardner's performance -- he completed 18 of 23 passes for 314 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 39 yards and three scores -- gave a good glimpse at the team's future, players and coaches were reflective on the accomplishments of the players who have stuck it out in the program after the game.

Michigan blog Maize 'N Brew recorded several comments from players and coaches in the postgame presser.

"Guys that stuck it out at Michigan have really become Michigan men," Roy Roundtree said.

Michigan finishes its season at undefeated Ohio State next Saturday.
